Deadly road upgrade ‘too expensive’ The budget of improving safety of Russ’s Corner on the Moutere Highway has been slashed after councillors last week reviewed options modifying the Tasman district’s second deadliest intersection. Following a fatal crash at Russ’s Corner in May 2011, nearby residents presented a petition with 2634 signatures to council staff to address the safety issues at the intersection. The intersection of Waimea West and Golden Hills roads and the Moutere Highway had been identified as a safety issue in 2009 with the proposed solution being a full realignment at an estimated cost of $900,000. However, that plan was rejected by councillors as too expensive, and engineers later proposed a $380,000 roundabout as Plan B. That plan was also rejected as being too expensive, and last year council commissioned an independent engineering consultant, Urbis, to consider the issues around the intersection and provide low cost solutions. Last Thursday, the council engi-

neering services committee agreed to implement some immediate changes to the intersection that had been recommended by Urbis. Committee chairman Trevor Norriss, says the council will install additional large signage to increase drivers’ awareness of the intersection layout and its inherent dangers, and improve the sighting distance to the intersection by clearing roadside vegetation. Illumination at the intersection will be improved, and the council will also review the speed limit approaching the intersection. Trevor says these measures will cost considerably less than the $380,000 roundabout. “Safety is always a priority, but we also have to be conscious of the cost. The council didn’t accept the original plans because they were too expensive. Now we have some affordable options. The $6000 we

Growers brace for water restrictions Farmers and orchardists on the Waimea Plains are preparing for increased water restrictions, after a dry February and with no rain in the long term weather forecast. The last significant rainfall was about 25 millimetres on February 7, prompting the Tasman District Council’s Dry Weather Taskforce to introduce stage one rationing for most water users on the Waimea Plains from Monday. That means a 20 per cent cut in the water take and taskforce convenor Dennis Bush-King says that will almost certainly be increased to 35 per cent (stage two) if it doesn’t rain soon. SEE PAGE 2

Growers brace for water restrictions FROM PAGE 1

Dennis says the taskforce was scheduled to meet again on Tuesday night and it would be “looking at the situation then”. It was possible that stage one restrictions would be increased to stage two and stage one would be introduced to Lower Confined and Hope Minor aquifers. “The river flows have dropped quite rapidly. There’s no rain in the forecast so it could be that we increase the cuts,” he says. Stage one cuts apply to the Upper Catchment, Reservoir, Waimea West, Delta, Golden Hills, and Upper Confined Aquifer zones on the Waimea Plains. Waimea Water Augmentation Committee chairman and Waimea Plains dairy farmer Murray King, says the cuts are bad news for the rural sector. He says apple growers need water for finishing and sizing fruit, while pastoral farmers need a consistent supply

of water to maintain pasture growth. “Pastoral farmers are using most of the water at this time of year because we have to match evapo-transpiration of the pasture. The ground is losing the equivalent of six or seven millimetres of water per day at the moment, which would be more than anyone’s allocation.” Wai-west Horticulture operations general manger Alan Dobbie, says the stage one cuts won’t have a big impact on their apples but if the cuts go to stage two it will reduce the size of their later ripening varieties. “We need the water to finish off the crop and get good sized fruit. We have already started harvesting the early varieties and they are looking excellent but it will make things a little bit tougher for the braeburn and jazz if we go to the next stage of cuts.” Alan says February’s hot dry weather has resulted in the “maturity moving a bit faster than we would like,” putting pressure on

the pickers. However, help arrived on Monday in the form of 33 Registered Seasonal Employer (RSE) workers who will join the workforce at Wai-West. Figures show that about 1000 RSE workers are expected to be employed in orchards around the Nelson-Tasman region this season, up on the 900 employed last season. Although farmers and orchardists had enjoyed a good growing season so far this season, Murray says the latest dry spell is a reminder that agriculture and horticulture on the Waimea Plains needs a reliable water supply. He says the best solution to the water shortage was the proposed Lee Valley dam project. Urban areas of Richmond, Mapua, Ruby Bay, Brightwater, Hope, Wakefield and Tapawera have been issued with a conserve water directive with hand-held hosing only permitted on odd and even calendar days corresponding to the house street number.

Upgrading ‘deadly’ road too expensive FROM PAGE 1 spent on the independent consultants report was money well spent.” Trevor says the next step will be to implement the changes and monitor their affect on traffic, as well as consulting with neighbouring residents to see if any further steps are required. “It won’t change the layout, but it will make people more aware of the dangers,” Trevor says. “If that doesn’t work, we may have to consider some of the other options recommended by the consultant.” Urbis provided two low cost options, 9 and 10 that involved widening the road and installing concrete channelisation to reduce the speed of traffic turning into Golden Hills Rd. These options had respective price tags of $100,000 and $150,000.

Texts to parents reduces wagging

WEDNESDAY 26 February 2014


Brenda Grant

Phillip Rollo



It has been around for eight years at one Nelson secondary school and for four at most others, but the concept of texting parents to tell them their student had an unexplained absence seems to have had a positive impact. Nayland College, Nelson College and Waimea College all said the concept had been effective in reducing the amount of truancy at their schools – particularly when it was first introduced. Parents can now even log into a database and view their child’s attendance during the day, which means no hiding for the students if they wag, skip or bunk class. At Waimea College the text reads: [Insert name here] was marked absent for one or more classes today. Please reply by text or phone. “They get one right of reply and they can text in something like ‘John is sick’, ‘thanks’ or ‘I’ll check if John is wagging’, or they can just give us a call,” principal Larry Ching says. It is close to four years that Waimea College has been us-

Photo: Phillip Rollo. ing this concept and Larry says it’s definitely made a difference. “The text messaging response definitely made a difference, and the same with the parent portal that they can log into and check their child’s attendance,” he says. “We never had a huge issue with truants but for the regular offenders – which I’d describe as missing one or two periods a week – well, it’s definitely made a difference, there’s no question about it.” The rapid communication was the reason it was so successful, having previously had to wait

until later in the day and then call the parent, who may not be home. “Now we log in into the attendance monitoring system, hit a button, and at a certain time of the day it’ll send a text to those people. Before, it worked on a manual approach where they had to individually call up.” Most Nelson secondary schools have also been using this concept for the same amount of time, and Nelson College’s deputy principal Tim Tucker says the whole reason behind it was to keep parents informed.

Bike nicked from outside green grocer A Brightwater couple are urging the public to keep an eye out for a silver Avanti touring bike, after it was taken while they were shopping for organic groceries in The Wood on Saturday afternoon. Rebbecca Paton, and her husband Adam Gilbert, had ridden into town for their weekly shopping at the Organic Green Grocer on the corner of Grove and Tasman St. The pair are friends with the owners of the store and say they stayed for about an hour, chatting

and getting their groceries. When they had returned to get their bikes, Adam’s one wasn’t there. She says they generally lock them up everywhere they go, except for when they go to see their friends in what they thought was a “safe” suburb. “We lock them everywhere else in Nelson, but at that shop we just lean them up against the window because every once and awhile you can glance at them. But this weekend my husband’s was against the wall,” she

the frame, as is the model name “Blade 2” in a darker colour. “It’s an interesting looking bike because it’s made for touring. It has two bright orange waterproof saddle bags and a silver bell.” Rebbecca reported the theft as soon as it happened, and is urging anyone that spots the bike to phone the police. “We took a whole year to save up for those bikes and we got rid of our car. Those bikes are our livelihood.”

Village sculpture to symbolise ‘re-birth’



The Avanti touring bike that was stolen on the weekend. says. Just one bike had been taken, and

as there was an older bike that had been ditched across the road, Rebbecca thinks someone going past might have used it as an opportunity for an upgrade. “Potentially, they have cast off that bike and gone for a pretty big upgrade. We were left stranded and had to get a ride back to Brightwater.” The bike is described as a silver road bike with black handle bars and silver mud-guards. It has “bigger sized” wheels, with Avanti in block letters written along

An abstract sculpture of a man and a woman will go up in Waimea Village, and the artist is doing all of the work on site. Margaret Johnston was approached by NBS Richmond, who are covering all of the costs, to do the sculpture for the village as it was something permanent that the residents could enjoy. “They wanted something to commemorate the change, or the rebirth of the village,” she says. “The people on the committee thought a sculpture would be perfect and they chose the theme of re-birth.” The limestone sculpture is expected to take three weeks.

Calls to boycott Tasman over tourism cut As Tasman District Council gets set to pull its funding for regional tourism, one local tourism businessman is urging Nelsonians to strike back – with a boycott of Richmond and Tasman businesses. Tim Bayley owns a B&B with his wife in central Nelson. He says the work Nelson Tasman Tourism does in attracting people to the region is vital to the industry and he doesn’t believe the Tasman council should pull its funding, which makes up a third of NTT’s total income. “I don’t want to boycott Tasman businesses. We buy all our produce from there but

it’s the only way to make an impact. I think the councillors out there are very farmerorientated, so maybe if we hit them in the pocket, they’ll wake up.” TDC last year signalled that it was going to pull its funding of $426,000 a year to the organisation, in a bid to cut its costs. Nelson City Council has said it will continue to fund the tourism body, which markets Nelson and Tasman to overseas and New Zealand tourists. Tasman councillors have questioned why its ratepayers should be contributing to one industry over others, but Tim says

Andrew Board Editor that’s backwards thinking and he put his thoughts in a submission to the council. “A lot of the work that NTT does is overseas and promoting Nelson to the world. It’s not something small tourism operators can afford to do.” He says if Tasman does pull its funding of NTT then Nelsonians should boycott Tasman businesses.

“If they’re not prepared to support us, why should we support them?” Tasman councillor Judene Edgar says it is highly unlikely the council will change its decision based on the threat of a boycott to businesses. “Threats can’t be the basis of our decision making. We understand their concerns, but the question is should the council be subsidising one industry.” The TDC’s draft annual plan is open for public submissions from March 15, in which the cut to funding NTT will be included.

Tasman residents have an opportunity to have their say on the future of the district’s parks and reserves, in a survey designed to improve the way they are managed. The Tasman District Council is conducting the survey, to help develop an open-spaces strategy to improve the management and provision of the district’s parks, reserves, cycleways, natural areas and other open spaces. The council’s community development committee chairwoman, Judene Edgar, says the survey is important because parks and reserves are such a big part of the community. It is essential that council finds out the types of open spaces that are important to residents and visitors so that it can make more informed decisions, she says.

“We have 595 hectares of parks and reserves and 41 playgrounds, and they are a big part of why we live in this region. These areas are something that everyone connects with so it’s critical that we get community feedback. Judene says it is also important for council to work other open space providers, such as the Department of Conservation and the Ministry of Education. It will be consulting with these and other land management agencies, as well as special interest groups, to help develop the open-spaces strategy. The survey can be completed online on the council website or by completing questionnaires located at council service centres and Department of Conservation visitor centres uptil March 3.

Having a library at school certainly comes with a cost. First you have to buy the books, and then you have to keep buying more every year to keep the collection new and fresh. While the way school libraries will look in the future is still unknown, and some schools are beginning to change the way theirs look already. St Paul’s Catholic School has gone with the technology option, and is dedicating half of their budget to ebooks and iPads. But five minutes away by car, Hope School is still deciding what to do, and will put their own library budget on hold for the year. Instead they will bus students to the Richmond Library twice a year and utilise their much bigger collection of books, while a review is in place. Hope School principal Dave Pritchard has thought about getting ebooks, but he hasn’t

its own facility. “The first time students got magazines out, and we don’t even have those in our library. A library is an ongoing cost.” When asked if there was a chance that Hope School could scrap its library at the end of the year, Dave says “at the moment we’re doing what we’re doing then we’ll review it”. In the mean time was certainly happy with visiting the public library, having got a “good deal” from the bus company which transports them there.

Ring winner gets perfect Valentine’s Day present Phillip Walker was able to give a very sparkly Valentine’s Day present to his fiancée Candice Preston – even if it was a week late. The Tahunanui man won a 10 carat, yellow and white gold, cluster ring with half a carat diamond in the Richmond Mall Valentine’s Day promotion. All he had to do was “like” the Richmond Mall on Facebook, just like another 1000 people did during the week, and he was in the draw. But because Phillip was in Wellington for work, it took nearly a week to get the message through

that he had won the ring. “I got a text from the missus saying ‘ring them’,” he explains, after Candice had also entered the competition. “That’s me though, last minute.” Richmond Mall manager Belinda de Clercq was rapt with the promotion, which was intended to attract more viewers to its Facebook page. Earlier in the month the page had just 800 likes, a figure which had now risen to just over 1800. “We’ve more than doubled so we’re really excited about it,” she says. “The Valentine’s Day promotion has been really successful.”

In August last year Dr Robert Beaglehole, principal dental officer for the Nelson Marlborough District Health Board, urged council to ban sugary drinks from its events, however the recommendation was rejected.

Big crowd tunes in to opera Around 8000 Nelsonians brought their blankets, chairs, picnics and plonk, and enjoyed two and a half hours of world class music at Trafalgar Park on Saturday night. Nelson Opera in the Park was once again a huge success, says organiser Pete Rainey, with a bigger crowd than last year. But punters will have to wait two years before seeing it again. “It was a great night, we were a bit apprehensive about what the weather was going to do, but it being such a nice evening we were really happy with the crowd. It seems that it was up on last year and they loved the show. I always get a few complaints but generally I think people loved it.” Opera in the Park has now been held for two years in a row and will take next summer off, while the Adam Chamber Music Festival is on. Pete says it was a deliberate move. “We’ve got it in sync now with the Adam Chamber Music Festival now. So that will be next summer and we’ll do the summer after that.” Performers for the event came from all over New Zealand, and Pete says they were certainly a hit. “They’re all professionals and young kiwis who

I thought they were fantastic.” Thousands took the opportunity to arrive early to enjoy the sun and meet up with friends, while kids played out the back of the ground. Pete says it’s a part of the event that makes it so special. “I really do believe that it’s the only opportunity for Nelsonians to gather in such a large crowd that’s not a sporting event. It’s really quite a special event. It’s right on the main

street and a lot people can just walk from home.” He says that putting on the show takes a lot of hard work from the Nelson City Council team and that Sophie Kelly, the director of the Nelson Summer Festival, did a great job. “I’m thrilled, you never really know until the night how it’s going to turn out, but it was a really great night. The musicians were buzzing, I’m just absolutely stoked to be able to bring those performers to Nelson.”

Community gets behind school gala Brightwater School principal Gerald Baldwin was happy to announce that $24,000 had been raised from their annual gala over the weekend. Held on Sunday, the gala offered a variety of fun activities for the kids to do, including a rock climbing wall, horizontal bungy, zorbs, pony rides, and more. The gala sold out of food and the silent auction was a big money raiser, Gerald says. “It’s great making that amount of money for the school,” he says. “We tried really hard to put on more activities for children and I think in doing so it kept more people here. The kids were out playing activities while the parents were able to sit down and have lunch, it was great.” Money raised from the school gala will go towards upgrading the playgrounds, and offering the students more “benefits” and things to do around the Brightwater School student William Julian, 10, on the horizontal school, Gerald says. bungy at the school’s gala on Sunday.

Last week I gave a warning about unscrupulous trades’ people. This week I should also mention a group we are aware of who have been targeting older people, trying to sell paintings door to door. It’s not illegal to sell a painting to a willing buyer, but we have information that the sellers are misleading people as to the paintings value and also putting pressure on older people to make a sale. If you have someone turn up on your doorstep trying to sell something, please don’t let them into your house and don’t feel under any obligation to buy. These people are generally experts at talking people into buying from them and it’s safe to assume you won’t be getting a bargain. If you’re in the Victory or Stoke communities, you may have noticed the new signage at our Police bases. Our community constable has been based at the Victory Community Centre since last May, and our road policing staff have been based at Stoke for about five years now. Finally we have signs in both locations showing who is there. Remember, now that we have the crime reporting line you don’t have to go to the Police Station to report something. It can all be done over the telephone, which we hope will make things easier for many of you. If, however, you still wish to come to the Stoke station, you can still do so as the front counter will be open if there is a police officer at the station. For all emergencies though, you still need to call 111.

Opera in the Park: A good night for oldies but something similar should be put on for teens with local groups playing. It could be called “pop in the park”.

second night who arent so much into opera. Get big sponsors and someone with real nous to coordinate it outside of council, film it and sell cd/dvd’s of it. Imagine a Rhian Sheehan with orchestra or a Fly my Pretties gig (both LOOP acts) out here in beautiful Delaware/ Cable bay along with a line up of other top notch homegrown bands. It could rival Rippon in Wanaka.... Dream big I say Nelson, and look to get people out of the city to more art and cultural events beyond a&p shows or winery tours. Robbie Siataga Kavanagh. I way preferred the atmosphere in Stoke. Last went at Traf Park years ago and felt like I was million miles away on the bank. Also I didn’t like how the big chairs were set up in low chairs place. Havent been back since. Gary Price. Parking tickets: It’s not many years ago that the police were accused of having “ticket quotas” and it was nothing more than “revenue gathering”. Well if there were any doubts about that, the disclosure that Environmental Inspections parking “police” is required by its contract to the Nelson City Council to issue not less than 18,500 parking tickets p.a. is indisputable “revenue grabbing” and a public disgrace. Whoever is responsible for thinking up this draconian requirement should be looking for a job. I do not want to see any part of my rates

going towards the salary of such an incompetent civil servant. It’s no wonder more and more people are shopping in Richmond. It’s no wonder there are umpteen empty shops in Nelson, and it’s no wonder that businesses are going to the wall in Nelson when we have a culture within the NCC Administration that vehicles are a curse on society and we should all be riding bicycles. In closing, I regret to inform those who think we should have a parking building in one of the carparks, that cost benefit analysis show that in the lifetime of a parking building in Nelson it would never break even. Nelson CBD - RIP. Errol Millar. Fire damaged home: I feel really sorry for the Hart family. A few years ago my family lost our home to a house fire and we lost so much of our recorded history. The only good thing to come from it was our renewed dedication to recording all our family get togethers ever since. Maggie Wright. Brightwater School gala: I would like to say thanks to the organisers of the Brightwater School Gala over the weekend. It was a great day out for the kids and I thought there was a great turn out, especially considering the wind! Thanks again, I hope you raised heaps. (Via text).

This Week

Orienteering proves popular The Nelson Orienteering Club’s summer programme got off to a flying start, with the introductory event at Tahunanui attracting 80 competitors, and around 60 people lining up at Waimea College for the first races of the summer and schools sprint series. The popular series continues on successive Mondays at Waimea Intermediate on March 3 and Nayland Col-

lege on March 10. “It was popular last year and it’s proving popular again this year. It’s a good Monday night pick me up,” club committee member Pamela White says. Pamela says competitors can start the Monday night events anytime between 5pm and 6.30pm. The events are open to everyone and cost $20 for a family, $14 for non-members and $7 for members.

Each week photos from the Nelson Provincial Museum’s “glass plate” collection will run in Nelson Weekly and Waimea Weekly in the hope that more can be found out about them. Right: Mr Hanlon. Tyree Studio Collection: 37024. Below: Jones, Smithy, Cullensville. Tyree Studio Collection: 36977. Can you tell us more about these photos?

5 Koru Place Stoke, Nelson 547 4666 tion the Company has experienced significant growth accumulating a wide variety of successfully completed projects and staff levels have increased to 40. Throughout this period of growth it became particularly evident that their original premises in Beach Road, Richmond

had become too small for their operational requirements. When asked, Coman Construction’s Contracts Manager Ben Coman laughs. “We had been short on space for a long time, in fact Gordon’s office was utilised as both a smoko and meeting room. It wasn’t ideal.”

Coman Construction Ltd has been building large-scale commercial, industrial, educational and community facilities in the Top of the South for more than 25 years. Throughout this period they have completed a long list of significant buildings. Some major projects worthy of specific note include: Richmond Mall – Eastern Entry; Freeman Roofing Factory; Peter Baker Transport; Gough Group TWL Building; Waimea College Gymnasium – Stages 1 and 2; Saxton Soccer Pavilion; Civil Defence Headquarters – Oxford Street; Westport Cultural Hub – (Coal town Museum and I-site); Victory School Hall and Community Centre; Summit Real Estate – Queen Street; Moutere Hills Community Centre; Headingly Centre and Mapua Waterfront Park Beautification (stage 2) .

5 Koru Place Stoke, Nelson 547 4666 During this relocation period Coman Construction has also been working alongside family owned partner company Coman Holdings on other exciting developments for Pic’s Really Good Peanut Butter and Animates NZ. Ben explains “Coman Holdings provides design, build and lease back packages in which we work closely alongside companies or individuals to provide building turn-key packages. We will design and build to suit specific requirements. “Our clients are busy running businesses and don’t want to waste time looking for land and worrying about building. They want to get on with running their business.” Ben’s father Gordon and grandfather Bill Coman manage Coman Holdings from offices in Wakatu Industrial Estate, Stoke. This is where Bill and Pic started talking… A conversation between two good neighbours a year ago has led to Nelson company Pic’s Really Good Peanut Butter securing a new warehouse at Wakatu Industrial Estate. Pic’s Really Good Peanut Butter’s owner

Pic Picot had been talking to Bill Coman about looking for another building so that his growing business could continue expanding. Pic and Bill had been neighbours when their businesses were based in “an old factory at the meatworks” so when Pic needed some expert

in a new warehouse they had designed and were building just around the corner - it was perfect for us so we ended up taking a lease for the whole building.” Pic says the new 700 square metre building located at 15 Elms Street in Wakatu Industrial Estate will be used as a storage facility and offices. They will continue making Pic’s Really Good Peanut Butter at their present factory at 18 Elms Street and have purchased a new truck to transport pallets, jars and lids and the finished product between the two sites. Pic and his team will move into the new building at the end of the month and he says they can’t wait. Their business had grown so much that things were getting crowded at the existing site and now they have plenty of room to continue that growth. “We desperately needed more room. We have 16 staff and produce 5000-6000 jars of peanut butter a day - that’s two tonnes of peanuts a day! “I’m staggered by our growth and Bill has said if we keep getting bigger and need more room he’ll build a new place for us down the road.”

Mike Brady and Trevor Allan are in the business of saving money for their clients. You wouldn’t think so given that they’re known as the local guys who provide businesses, schools and other organisations with copiers, printers and scanners. But they say by working with those people to find out how much they print they can save them hundreds of dollars a year. In fact any organisation that prints a piece of paper could benefit from having a chat with Mike or Trevor. The two local men started The Copier Company 12 years ago and quickly established themselves as the best in the business. They say the reason

is simple: “We can save people money and provide a world class service, it’s as easy as that,” says Trevor. The Copier Company is the only photocopier business in town that is locally owned and operated and they now service some 2000 machines in Nelson, Blenheim and the West Coast. They say the business has been successful because they’ve worked hard at providing great service to their growing list of local clients. “Industry standard is turning up to a problem within four hours of receiving a call, we aim for two but most of the time we are there within the hour,” says Trevor. “The downside of that is that we’ve

So being easy to deal with and providing really good service is the key to the business,” he says. The Copier Company has more service technicians than any other copier business in town and says they can provide a range of solutions for all businesses. “It’s often just a case of sitting down and doing the numbers, people quickly realise how much money we can save them and they usually are pretty keen,” says Mike. “But there is no obligation, just give us a call and see what we can do.” The pair have decades of experience in the copier business and although 100 per cent local, they have the backing of one of the world’s largest copier manufactures, Ricoh. Mike says the business has been a “great journey”. Since 2002 they’ve had to expand twice before moving to a new purpose-built premises on the corner of Vanguard and Gloucester Sts late last year. “We just needed to expand again,” says Trevor. “It gave us an opportunity to have something purpose built and it was driven by the increase

in business and allow for future growth as well.” The new premises allow for a large show room, bigger offices, plenty of warehouse and workshop space and more room for their growing staff numbers. Mike says their ability to relate with other local business owners gives them another competitive edge over their competition. “We’re business owners too so often we talk business, how things are going and people realise that the buck stops with us. If something goes wrong we’ll fix it. It doesn’t have to go through the sales manager to head office and back down the chain of command, we fix it here on the spot and that’s something that’s been really important.” Mike and Trevor’s mission statement is to be easy to deal with and provide world class service. They also know how to make sure any organisation is getting the most from their copier.

Brightwater definitely turned it on for the return of the Wine and Food Festival earlier this month with a day of perfect weather and great hospitality. 2014 saw the return of this iconic event where local Nelson and Tasman residents head out to Brightwater to enjoy music, wine, beer, food and camaraderie. Organised by Richmond Rotary, the Brightwater Wine and Food Festival’s primary goal is to raise funds for local charitable organisations. This year’s recipients will include Wanderers Sports Club, Brightwater Rural Fire Force and the Richmond Volunteer Fire Brigade, and Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter. The organisers would like to extend their thanks to their generous sponsors, stallholders and performers, the Brightwater community and to all those who attended the festival.

SPORT Falcons win conference

It’s like the Nelson Marlborough Falcons just don’t know how to lose. Sunday afternoon’s 2-0 win over Team Wellington in the capital has secured them the Southern Conference title and a place in the ASB Youth League final with two games to spare. The NZ King Salmon Falcons only needed one point from the remaining three matches to be sure of a spot in the final, but the weekend’s three pointer in Wellington has insured the team’s perfect record remains in tact – that’s right, eight wins from eight games – and a home final against Auckland City likely to be on March 16. The Falcons are just in their second season of national league football,

and, considering they come from one of the smallest catchment areas in the competition, the perfect record is certainly remarkable. Coach Davor Tavich took a younger squad to Wellington, with over-age player Ryan Stewart back in Nelson, and he was extremely happy with the result, with former Garin College student Jos Lis coming off the bench to score a second half brace. The Falcons will play two more games before the final – the first of which is this Sunday at Trafalgar Park against YoungHeart Manawatu – and Davor hinted that some of the young players might get some more opportunities, although whether captain Coey Turipa would be amongst those rested is unknown.

Teens take out Rainbow Rage Former Waimea College student Tom Filmer made a winning return to mountainbiking in Saturday’s Summit Real Estate Rainbow Rage from St Arnaud to Hanmer Springs. Tom, 19, completed the 103 kilometre ride in 3 hours 28 minutes 44 seconds, heading off Stephen Halligan of Hanmer Springs by one minute 18 seconds, with Christchurch’s Michael Buschl third in 3 hours 34 minutes 1 second. Despite a strong tailwind, Tom couldn’t quite break his own race record of 3 hours 26 minutes 18 seconds, set in 2012. “It was a good race with a really good tailwind after Island Saddle,” Tom says. “But there was a bit of headwind out there too, which slowed us down.” It was Tom’s first significant win since returning from France last year, where he raced on the road for VCC Morteau. He was planning to race in France again this season, but changed his mind after his new team wanted him to return early. “I’d signed a contract and was

going to go back in March, but then they called and said they wanted me back there in January. It’s not much fun training over there in the middle of winter - you just get cold and wet and sick, so I decided to stay in Nelson.” Nayland College student Olivia Miller completed back-toback wins in the women’s race finishing in 4 hours 18 minutes 32 seconds. Although Olivia’s winning time was 20 minutes faster than last year and over an hour faster than the next female rider, she couldn’t keep up with her father Tim. “I can’t believe that Dad beat me again. Next year it’s all on,” Olivia joked after the race. Olivia, who finished fourth in the under-19 race at the national champs in Rotorua earlier this month, says her next assignment is the Motutapu near Queenstown on March 8. Then she will represent

Bavin will be taking this team with Kyle Paki-Paki again being named manager. It is yet to be determined whether Wanderers will enter a team in division three. The JAB section of Wanderers looks likely to have big numbers yet again, having traditionally been one of the highest participated junior clubs in the region. The registration night for all junior grades will be held at the clubrooms on Friday March 14 from 5-7pm. The junior competition starts on May 10, and the club’s major sponsor Taylors Contracting will once again be giving away a free rugby ball to

Murchison is one of the country’s white water capitals, Zealand’s premier white water event. The Buller Festival goes for three days, and includes four with up to 20 different runs in the nearby rivers. “Muraction filled events for what the volunteer organisers say chison is like the epicenter.

Going forward, Sophia hopes the Buller Festival can continue to be New Zealand’s premier white water event. “It relies on a lot of volunteer support and at the moment there is a good keen group to have it run each year. I don’t know if it needs to get too much bigger though, I don’t know if Murchison could handle it.”

Thrilled with effects of pool exercise Seventy-eight year old Eddie Thomas, still works as a civil engineer and describes his experience at Richmond Physiotherapy’s ASB Aquatic Centre clinic. “For many years I have had numbness in my legs, which is an age related problem, and results from pressure on nerves from damaged or worn discs in the Lumbar spine. In June 2013, while lifting in the garden, I injured my back further, resulting in a partial loss of balance and muscle control in my legs, so I started walking with a stick and had to abandon my daily routine of walking up Richmond Hill. In September I fell awkwardly in a doorway and ruptured my quadriceps tendon, but this was painless due to the condition of the nerves in my lower spine. I had the tendon surgically repaired and was discharged from hospital on crutches. I have been astounded at the rapid loss of muscle in my legs from reduced exercise after my tendon repair operation and the time

that it was taking to recover. My first priority has been to get reasonably fit before back surgery. Next I would like to resume work, and it is likely to be 2-4 months before I am fit enough for that. I am advised it could be 12 months before I am fully recovered. In October I started receiving treatment from Sue Marren. In their brochure Richmond Physiotherapy describe themselves as “the body detectives, committed to reducing pain and increasing mobility by finding the right solution for you,” and say that “our treatment encourages self-management and promotes independence to all age groups.” Over several visits Sue developed daily exercise routines for me of gradually increasing intensity. The exercises focused on strengthening my right knee and body. Concurrently I was attending Richmond Physiotherapy clinic at the ASB Aquatic and Fitness Centre where Martin King checked my progress peri-

odically and advised on exercise routines in the Hydrotherapy Pool. Coupled with that I took up swimming and walking against the current in the “river” adjacent to the Wave Pool. Usually I finished off with the Spa and then spend 30 minutes on the exercycle at home. This was my routine which I tried to maintain six days per week. Needless to say it took a fair amount of determination to achieve this, but I was seeing the benefits. Hydrotherapy is a form of Physiotherapy, and the benefits I saw were: weightlessness due to buoyancy, no jarring of joints, increased range of exercises available to you because of the above, and the company of other people who have similar problems and aims. I continued physio and hydrotherapy until back surgery on 5 Feb. This week I saw Sue Marren and with her help, I plan to be fully fit, walking the Richmond hills and back at work by the start of June. Business Update. Adv.

Tasman’s Super connection

Phillip Rollo Reporter Tasman Makos fans have ten reasons to get into this year’s Super Rugby competition, with the ITM Cup Championship winners having a record representation across the New Zealand teams. Never before has the region had so many Super Rugby players, with ten Tasman Makos signing contracts after the successful provincial season – and the good news is that all ten will be returning to Nelson for the ITM Cup. Tasman Rugby Union’s Les Edwards, acknowledges fans’ loyalties and allegiances might be more split in 2014, with those players spread across four different franchises – and with former Tasman prop Sam Prattley at the Blues there is argument that all of the bases are covered. “I think there’s every chance the Chiefs will become our region’s second favourite team,” he says, after the Crusaders had traditionally been the Super Rugby franchise of choice for most Nelson rugby fans. “The Crusaders is, for most people in our region, their team but the Chiefs are certainly knocking on doors, aren’t they.” The reason for that is the fact the Chiefs

Shane Christie, who started for the Highlanders on the weekend, and Kieran Fonotia, who is in the Crusaders wider training squad, are just two of the ten Tasman Makos getting a chance in the Super 15. Photos: Otago Daily Times and Phillip Rollo. have picked up four Tasman players and they are already making an impact at the two-time champions, with James Lowe running the length of the field to score a try in the dying stages of Friday night’s 18-10 win over the Crusaders. Tevita Koloamatangi, who is only signed on a wider-training-squad deal, made his Super Rugby debut for the Chiefs, starting at

openside flanker in the place of the injured Sam Cane and Tanerau Latimer. He had a busy first game, marking none other than Richie McCaw. The two other Makos who will be playing in Hamilton this year are fullback Tom Marshall, who ventures north after two seasons with the Crusaders, but is currently out for the next eight weeks with an

injury and flanker Liam Squire. In Friday’s opener, Makos fans got a chance to see one of the Crusaders contingent, with Tim Perry handed a starting spot over All Black prop Wyatt Crockett. Kieran Fonotia, who was selected in the wider-training-squad, is yet to make an appearance. In the Deep South, Shane Christie got his Super Rugby season off to the perfect start with the Highlanders beating the Blues 2921. Joe Wheeler is also contracted to the Highlanders this year, but did not play in the season opener. And finally, Marty Banks – who rose to prominence after missing out on an ITM Cup contract with the Makos before steering them to the Championship title – started at fullback for the Hurricanes in their 27-9 loss to the Sharks in Durban. He booted a trademark long range penalty to pick up in first points of the campaign. Marty is joined by Billy Guyton at the Hurricanes, after the Makos halfback secured a wider-training-squad contract. There are a number of other players with Nelson connections in each of the franchises, including James Marshall (Hurricanes), Sam Prattley (Blues) and Mitchell Drummond (Crusaders). Both James and Sam used to play for the Tasman Makos, while Mitchell plays for Canterbury.
